They reason that if other cities can afford public library service, Cheney can too." "Thus, h,avin committed themselves to the 'no new tax- es' approach, these people who want a public library see that the big question is not, "Can we afford it?" but, "Is it really an important thing for our community to ttave, and if so, why?" To answer this they have bcgun to try. to out their beliefs and interest into words, and have called a town meet- ing to discuss the matter," she continued. "The newsletter signers do not believe that the City Coun, cil will appropriate money for a library immediately, or even ts year. But they believe that if they do go to the Council each year and give hem good remsons for havirg a public li- brary in Cheney, and if it turns out that there truly is a widesprread desire in Cheney for a public library, that be- fore too long, Cheney will have one," Mrs. Stearns added. Farmer Says Parmers and businessmen 'are paying more than their shoe of taes and receiving too little in retur for their investment, an Amber farmer dectaPed recently. F. N. ,lcKinley, president of the Spokane Ctflne's Ass'n, made the statement in a letter he sent to the chairmen o the state senate ways and means comnttee. "We Rnd that the rmea, s azid businessmen are paying far too mu:h tax in comparison with other people, and in most instances are realizing less than 2 per cent on their in- vestmen,ts, ncl, udLag their la- bor, [s beirg especially true of LagricuRure. Agriculture and its productivity ,being the great- est ,asset this nation has, seems now to begin to be treated as a liability," .he said. McKinley said he ,has spent six weeks attending meetings throughout Spokane County, talking with men in all walks of e. Majority of Same Opinion "I find the majority o,f them to be of the same opinion on tax programs; th, at being name- ly to stabilize the Real Estate and Propery tax at 25 per cent ,of the true and fair value; see- ond to remove the B. & O. tax completely and augment the tax sittmtion with a state net Income tax of some nature. McKinley said ,he commends Gov. Dan Evav.s "on the ideals and intens hich I believe are corttalrmd within his Blue Print for Progress program." "I feel," he continued, "that this program, ff properly augment- ed and executed, would be a wordarful thing for the State of Washington and its people." McKinley added, hfever, that "I :have gathered testi- m,o5, from all segments of ag- riculture on my side of the state that the belief is this pro- gram carmot be a success or become a reality when based upon a tax program which al- lows one part of the people to create a hardship upon the other part, by not carrying ,their fair Share of the tax bur- den."
